This is a community created to bring together Supernatural fanfic/RPS writers and beta-readers.
The writer-beta relationship can be a wonderful thing, but it's unlikely you will find 'The One' with your first choice. But if/when you do find the beta of your dreams, treat them well, feed them often and don't forget to credit them each and every time you post. They will be your greatest fandom resource.

POSTING INFO FOR WRITERS
All posts requesting a beta's help should be polite and provide as much information as possible:
Title: Genre: (Action/Humor/Drama/Crossover/Fluff/Kidfic/Slash/Wincest/Gen/Het/Threesome/Moresome/Mpreg/Deathfic/PWP/Smut/BDSM/AU/RPS etc) Pairings or Characters: Type of beta you'd like: (grammar/spelling/plot/canon/Dean-voice, etc…) Length: (Drabble/Stand-alone/Multi-chapter/Novel-length… also include (estimated) number of words) Short Summary:
If you’re not sure about something, or haven’t decided yet because it’s still a WIP, say so.
And remember, betas have as much choice in this as writers. Just because you think beta xxx looks perfect for you, that doesn't mean that they will think the same about you or your fic. Betas can and will say no, with or without providing a reason, so keep in mind that 'betas have real lives too'.
Please remember to check the poster's info to make sure they are compatible with you and your fic.</center>
Please note that this is a beta-finding community, not a betaing community, so please do not post fic in the comm.
Thank you, and welcome!
